Flight, June 1934
Designed for dive bombing, among other duties, this Westland General Purposes machine is a monoplane in which the pilot is seated in front of the wing to give him the best possible view. The design is unusual in that the wing-bracing
struts are built up as aerofoil surfaces, and thus contribute a certain amount of lift, while split trailing edge flaps further increase the lift and also act as effective air brakes, so that the machine can be landed at a steep angle in a small area. The wing span is 60 ft. 3 in. and the engine a Bristol 555-h.p. "Pegasus" IIM.3.
